Windows 7: Network Sharing Problem. Connecting Desktop to home network

Network Sharing Problem. Connecting Desktop to home network

So i'm having an issue connecting my desktop to my home network for file sharing. My Desktop is connected to the internet like so: Desktop ->(Ethernet cable)-> Uverse 2wire router -> Internet.

I have no issues with my internet connection, and in fact I am posting this from my desktop now. Windows Network Diagnostics finds no issues when I run the trouble shooter. and when I try to connect to a home group it refers me to the network issue.

This issue has plagued me for about 6 months now. I have talked to Uverse tech support, and many of my friends who are into computers and have gotten no answers. Computer is running windows 7 SP1 and again the router is the Uverse 2wire router

How can I make my desktop available for network sharing?

Also here is a screenshot of the network map according to this computer

Have you set up a home network? What is the workgroup name? Are there any passwords of any kind? Have you set your shared settings on each PC in the workgroup?

I cant do any of that until i'm connected to a network. Every time I try to do anything related to home group or network sharing i get told "your not connected to a network".

Are there any issues in device manager relating to network adapter or any issues for that matter.

Cuz according to that screen shot you have no internet connection at all. So there is definitely a problem there.
